Understanding Learning and Teaching in Schools
This practical guide to the pedagogy of teaching looks not only at the "how" of teaching, but also at the "what" and the "why". Pedagogy (the science of teaching) is part of the essential understanding of all teachers: a sound conception of pedagogy is central to all good teaching. Based on curriculum and teacher training agency guidelines, the work evaluates what pedagogy is, and how teachers can understand - and benefit from - this potentially complex subject. Illustrated throughout with examples, the volume encourages readers to engage in a positive approach to learning to teach. Key topics covered include: understanding pedagogy; creating a foundation for learners; learning and teaching; learning to teach well; and frameworks for learning to teach.
